Ted Rall, in BUT WHO WATCHES THE WATCHDOGS?, points out:
“Death threats against liberal pundits are commonplace among, and essentially unique to, the right-wing blogs. And the GOP thinks that’s OK. Nowhere can one find a responsible mainstream Republican to speak out against this hate speech.”
Can any reader think of even ONE Republican politician who has spoken out against the stuff people like Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh are spewing into America’s public discourse?
After McVeigh’s bombing in Oklahoma City (egged on by Limbaugh) the Republican Party responded by conducting investigations into Waco and Ruby Ridge — essentially validating McVeigh’s act — instead of investigating the right-wing militias.
